The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the most enduringly popular of British comic dramas, and a mainstay of English literature and drama courses at college and university level. This is an ideal edition for students with on-page notes to help clarify meaning, and a completely new introduction. In the new introduction, Francesca Coppa explores recent critical approaches to the play, including queer and postcolonial readings, as well as giving the context in which the play was written and how it relates to Wilde's personal life and public persona. The introduction also discusses the play's stage history, providing students with an ideal overview of the play and its resonances for contemporary audiences.

"Josie O'Conner travels to San Francisco in 1951 to locate her gay brother, a private dick investigating a blackmail ring targeting lesbians and gay men. Jimmy's friends claim that just before he disappeared he became a rat, informing the cops on the bar community's nascent resistance to raids, graft, and brutality. Josie adopts Jimmy's trousers and wingtips as well as his investigation, battling to clear his name, halt the blackmailers, and exact justice for the mounting number of Queer corpses. Along the way she rubs shoulders with a sultry chanteuse running a dyke tavern called Pandora's Box; gets intimate with a red-headed madame operating a brothel from the Police Personnel Department; and conspires with the star of Finocchio's a dive so disreputable it's off limits to servicemen--so every man in uniform pays a visit. Blackmail, My Love is an illustrated murder mystery deeply steeped in San Francisco's Queer history. Established academic and first-time novelist Katie Gilmartin's diverse set of characters negotiate the risks of same-sex desire in what can arguably be called the Dark Ages of Queerdom. Humor leavens the grave subject matter. The novel's action is fueled by a little-known 1951 California Supreme Court ruling that homosexuals have a right to congregate: the decision incited tavern owner resistance to customary payoffs in exchange for police protection, but also provoked new surveillance tactics to justify raids and extortion. Set in such legendary locations as the Black Cat Cafe, the Fillmore during its heyday as jazz capitol of the west, the Beat movement's North Beach, and the sexually complex Tenderloin, Blackmail, My Love is neo-noir novel that distills history and fiction into a singular, visually stunning experience"-- provided by publisher.

Queer Pulp exposes the history of queer sexuality in mid-twentieth century American paperbacks. Historian Susan Stryker charts the rise of the queer paperback within the context of American pop- and publishing culture, with a peppy and accessible overview of the cultural, political, economic, and sociological factors involved. A diverse lot, queer pulp is most easily broken down in the categories of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender themes. Within those subgenres, the books and authors themselves are accompanied by countless fascinating stories (for example, a former Georgetown University philosophy professor named H. Lynn Womack founded the notorious Guild Press, a major gay porn publishing house that was a prominent First Amendment crusader in the sixties). Featuring the work of such highbrow authors as W. Somerset Maugham and Truman Capote, to the no-brow hacks who worked under several names at once, Queer Pulp is the entertaining and informative introduction to these lost, lurid literary genres.
